“A peaceful place with stunning views”
Reviewed 15 August 2011

We had an amazing time at Gleninchaquin. We brought a picnic lunch and started out with the intent to hike the easy trail as we had a 4 year old with us. The trail through the woods was quaint and the small falls and rock pools were so peaceful. However, as we got further along we were drawn to the beautiful open views and ended up doing the trail that goes over the falls. We were not sorry. Absolutely beautiful. We took so many pictures and they came out amazing but they still couldn't even come close to the real beauty in person. And we loved that there were sheep too. The owners/hosts were very welcoming and friendly. I would recommend this park to anyone who loves being outside in the fresh air and seeing amazing views. Don't forget to check out the stone circle on your way out - you can see the beautiful waterfall in the background. It makes a great picture.

“Great day out!”
Reviewed 6 August 2011

My husband and I visited Kenmare with our two dogs and as it's a private sheep farm we were unsure whether we would be allowed do the walks but it was no problem. Needless to say we kept them on leads. It is a very remote spot but beautiful. There is a choice of routes to take. We chose an easy trail, taking around an hour. We went through a water garden and pretty woodland with a beautiful stream running alongside with several mini waterfalls. We then went out into open countryside and up a small incline to get fantastic views of the valley. We came down at the foot of the the main waterfall. It really was lovely though not as spectacular as some reviews, I imagine due to a lack of rainfall, lovely all the same. We returned to the car park through a meadow full of sheep. It was a lovely way to spend the afternoon and not too taxing, although I believe there are trails of varying difficulty. We found our way around easily thanks to the directions the owner gave us before we set out. There is a €5 entrance fee per person but the grounds are so beautifully kept that it's worth it and it is privately owned. I would recommend bringing a picnic as there are lots of tables along the way and definitely bring a camera for the views. I had good supportive runners which were fine for the trail we did. I think hiking boots might be a better idea if you wanted to do longer trails. Definitely worth a trip!
